Trek to Rifugio Pedrotti
The route to ‘Rifugio Tommaso Pedrotti - Tosa’ crosses spectacular Dolomites scenery and offers extraordinary views. After climbing the green slopes of Val delle Seghe right up to Rifugio Croz dell'Altissimo (1430 m), the hike proceeds to a green basin further uphill which gives its name to Rifugio Selvata (1657 m). There, a long ascent begins: first to Baito Massodi (1985 m), then to the ‘laghetti’ (=lakelets) basin, and finally to Rifugio Tommaso Pedrotti (2491 m), a picturesque hut situated on a dolomitic platform at the foot of two massive and beautiful needles: Cima Brenta Alta and Cima Brenta Bassa. The comfort of the friendly mountain hut is a well-deserved reward for a long and strenuous hike requiring a substantial amount of training.
You have the choice between two starting places: Pradel (1359 m), the easier option, can be reached by ski lift from Molveno; Ciclamino (926 m), in Molveno, is the difficult option: not only does it lengthen the overall walking distance by about 3.5 km, it also adds about 400 m to the difference in altitude that needs to be overcome.
